Subj:     Math Prob. - Party Favors (S594)
From: Puzzles And Brain Teasers on 6/5/2008

Sheila, buying favors for a party she was giving, was
having difficulty deciding on how many more favors to buy.
She started out by planning to give everyone three favors,
but when she divided the favors she had by 3, she had one
left over; when she divided by 4, she had two left over;
by 5, she had three left over; and by 6, she had four left
over.  Since she was going to have ten guests, this would
not work.  She counted the favors and realized that, by
adding two more, she could divide the favors evenly.  What
is the smallest number of favors she could already have
bought to meet those specifications?

Subj:     LOGIC PROB. - Hairs On The Head (S602)
From: Puzzles And Brain Teasers on 7/22/2008

Given that there are more people living in Dublin than there are
hairs on the head of any Dubliner, and that no Dubliner is totally
bald, does it necessarily follow that there must be at least two
Dubliners with exactly the same number of hairs?

Here is a variant of the same problem: on the island of Alopecia,
the following facts are true:
1. No two islanders have exactly the same number of hairs.
2. No islander has precisely 450 hairs.
3. There are more islanders than there are hairs
on the head of any one islander.
What is the largest possible number of islanders on Alopecia?
